Steamboat Powdercats offers AIARE (The American Institute for Avalanche Research and Education) Level I avalanche courses typically in early January.
The AIARE Level 1 avalanche course is designed as an introductory “stand-alone decision-makers course” for those planning on traveling and recreating in avalanche terrain. Our instructors are AIARE trained and qualified. The 24 hours of course work focuses on the basic skills necessary to manage your risk in the winter backcountry.
For the 2020/21 season, we are offering two courses.

As of September 24, 2020, these courses are full. If you are interested please put in an inquiry as we may be opening up more courses this season and having you on a waitlist helps us contact you in the future. We do know that our courses will be pivoting to no office time with course work moving to an online platform. Field sessions will be the same with the exception that we will not be using our snowcats to move students up into the terrain.
